Fresh on the heals of the Active Rain vs. Move.com dispute comes news of at least 2 — that’s right, count ‘em — TWO!! — more real estate-focussed social networking sites.
The boys of Sellsius, refreshed after a cross country RV trip and then a fishing vacation, just put out a press release about an upcoming site called BeatYouThere. Well, I beat it over there, and this is what I saw:
Fortunately, I then came across a site named Listolia being not-so-subtly promoted in the comments of Michael Arrington’s not-so-inerring post about Realtors suing Realtors. I scurried over and this is what I found:
Hey, I’ve got an idea: Let’s start a real estate social networking site where we can talk about real estate social networking sites! We’ll call it … hmm … RealEstateSocialNetworking.com. Nah. Taken. (I’m serious!) How about SocialNetworkingAboutSocialNetworking.com ? Any takers?
Seriously, folks, this train has left the station. I don’t know how many social networking sites the real estate industry actually needs. The established ones (listed above) have some serious critical mass already, and it’s not clear that yet another one would have a chance of catching up, unless it offered a really compelling hook that nobody else did.
